BROADBAND BREAKFAST INSIGHT: Think of all that has transpired over the past century and a half!

Remembering Alexander Graham Bell, from Commscope

On March 7, 1876, Alexander Graham Bell received a patent for his revolutionary new device—the telephone. Since then, telephony has evolved in ways even this great thinker could not have imagined. After connecting the world with telephone wires, we moved to wireless for voice services and eventually mobile data, i.e. the internet. The GSM Association (GSMA) says there are now more than 5 billion mobile subscribers globally. Mobile technology dominates the telecom industry.

At GSMA’s recent Mobile World Congress event, CommScope displayed our latest technologies that help enable the next generation of wireless, 5G. From antennas that boost current network speeds to 1 Gigabit per second to new solutions for in-building wireless and fixed wireless access, CommScope continues in the innovative spirit of Bell. Here’s a quick video from the show floor summarizing our latest work. To stay abreast of our news throughout the year, sign up to receive our press releases and blog posts.
